Some OS 3.9 troubleshooting help needed

So I have the two official boing bags and the unofficial "3" installed.

A few issues though:

1: The replacement ROM from boing bag 2 broke the system pretty hard (refusing to boot), so I got it set to the previous one.
Is there a simple trick to getting it to work though?

2: The install script for BB3 has some stuff to add to the startup-sequence, but that also caused the machine to be unable to boot.
Anyone has a startup-sequence AND BB3 installed, that they could share?

3: Lastly, with BB3 but the startup sequence stuff disabled, things seem to work, but I get weird horizontal lines of corruption occasionally when a folder opens.


Any suggestions for any of the above?

The system is a 1200, with one of the ACA030 cards (56 mhz, 64 megs RAM), 3.1 ROMs

I always had issues when using loadmodule etc etc for updated stuff.
If I made a 1MB ROM and kicked that all my issues were gone.

As you have an ACA card, you could try kicking an updated 3.1 ROM.

FOL is right.

Best solution is to make your own ROM (just check out my guide here), and then kick it via ACATune and ACA's awesome MapROM feature.

It works like a charm, and I can send you many videos to prove it

Also stop hearing nonsense about BB3 and BB4 being unstable and not good for you. You just need to understand better what all these patches do in your system and how to install them appropriately.

If you need any more help, we're here

I agree, never had any issues with stability.
